In the year in which Misao Okawa was born in Osaka, Queen Victoria was still on the British throne, the Spanish American War was raging and Horatio Kitchener triumphed in the Battle of Omdurman.
Already recognised as the oldest person in the world, Mrs Okawa will on March 5 reach the remarkable milestone of 116 - and attributes her longevity to eating well and sleeping at least eight hours every night, with the occasional nap thrown in for good measure.
“Eat and sleep and you will live a long time,” she said in a message to The Telegraph. “You have to learn to relax.”
